Civil Enigneering and Construction


With a broad range of expertise in civil engineering, we offer a set of services including initial feasibility investigations, estimating, design development, construction drawings, and construction engineering support. Our approach pulls on seasoned, talented engineers working directly in all aspects of the project life cycle, from scoping to closeout.


Optimization of land use, system modeling, sizing and layout of utilities, entitlement services, and cost estimating.


Design of grading, roadways, drainage, stormwater treatment, sewer, and water infrastructure.


Site layout, site design, ADA compliance, aesthetics, integration with building design.


Design of municipal facilities including roadways, pipelines, and pump stations.

Project Case Study

Merritt College – Science & Allied Health Building

Oakland, California

Merritt College Science and Allied Health Building is a new 108,500 square foot multi-story science building on the Merritt College campus that was a design-build project. Wood Rodgers provided civil engineering services for grading, domestic water, sanitary sewer, storm drain, and hardscape improvements that include accessible parking and building access. The site work challenges included stepping the building to account for its hillside location and dealing with a multitude of existing utilities that crisscrossed the site. The project is a certified LEED Platinum building.
